Don’t miss this special broadcast of this classic concert on Saturday, December 31 at 9:30 p.m.  

Join Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson -‘the Mt. Rushmore of country music’- for this live concert recorded in 1990. The Highwaymen perform classics like ‘Big River,’ ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ and ‘Always on My Mind.’

The Highwaymen were a country music supergroup composed of four of the genre’s biggest artists well known for their pioneering influence on the outlaw country subgenre: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson. Active between 1985 and 1995, these four artists recorded three major label albums as The Highwaymen: two on Columbia Records and one for Liberty Records. Their Columbia works produced three chart singles, including the Number One “Highwayman” in 1985.
